Was there a gas chamber at the Bergen-Belsen camp?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 3:38 pm

I answered the question, in the title of my blog post, on this page of my scrapbookpages.com website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/BergenBelsen/BergenBelsen04.html

The article about Bergen-Belsen on my website starts with this quote:

Begin quote from my website:

Immediately after the war, in the Spring of 1945, the majority of Americans believed that there had been homicidal gas chambers in most of the Nazi concentration camps, certainly in Dachau, Buchenwald and Bergen-Belsen.

After seeing the horrible newsreels of thousands of dead bodies in the camps, there was no doubt in most people’s minds that the Nazis had carried out mass gassings in Germany, as well as in the death camps in what is now Poland.

Even today, news reports claim that there were gas chambers at Bergen-Belsen, as well as at Buchenwald and Dachau.

Famous Holocaust survivor Eva Moses Kor

Holocaust survivors walking out of Auschwitz-Birkenau

As far as I know, Eva Moses Kor is not in the photo above, which shows Holocaust survivors walking out of a death camp. I am using this photo to show that the Holocaust survivors were in good health and appeared to have been well fed and taken care of.

This recent news article has a different take on the story of the Holocaust.

Quite from news article:

INDIANAPOLIS — A documentary film about the life of Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor will have its world premiere at Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University on Thursday, April 5, 2018.

The film explores Kor’s life as a Jewish girl on a farm in Romania, to the time she spent at Auschwitz, to the now 83-year-old’s journey to forgiveness and healing.

“I heard (Nazi Dr. Josef) Mengele say that I only had two weeks to live, and I decided I was going to prove him wrong. I didn’t understand what I did. Why did Hitler hate me?” asked Kor.

Tickets for  the “Eva” premiere on April 5 are $40 and go on sale on Friday, January 19, at 10 a.m. through the Clowes Memorial Hall box office and Ticketmaster.

The film is a partnership between WFYI, Ted Green and Mika Brown.

End quote

I have no sympathy for Holocaust survivors who use their time in a Nazi prison to make a fortune on sales of books and films. Old photos show that these prisoners were not treated badly. There was a war going on, and these Jews were put in prison to prevent them from aiding the enemy.  Watch the new trailer below.
